I can't believe it's been almost 3 years. Although the 910 has served me well, the maintenance aspect of ownership leaves much to be desired.
Come this Wednesday a new GAMMA will be in the house. Between the 3 machines I own, I can't wait to sell Eagnas fast enough. And yes, the Ektelon will remain the backup. Here's the history of my machine ownership.
Tremont - 2 yrs
Ektelon - 20+ and counting
Eagnas Combo 910 - 3 yrs
Gamma ST-II - new beginning...
hm.. i see
but the 910 base is plastic, should't it flex more? cuz i string my racket at 65-70lbs. well maybe the 940 metal base is very thin? I'm guessing
